A great time to grab a bargain!

Do you like a bargain? I know I do! Well, at the moment, the best bargain I know is the Starter Kit from Stampin’ Up!. It is the bargain of the month. Actually, it’s a bargain until 15 August 2008 (in Australia). Why is it a bargain? Because Stampin’ Up! have a promotion this month with $25 off the Starter Kit. That means you receive over $560 worth of high quality, stamping product and business supplies for only $299.00!!

And if the thought of “joining” niggles your senses please let me assure you, there are NO CATCHES!! If you simply love the idea of grabbing a bargain – then you can grab this bargain and walk away if you want to! The Starter Kit is yours to keep. You do not have to give a bit of the Starter Kit back to Stampin’ Up!, nor do you pay any penalties for walking away. Stampin’ Up! do not have any catches on joining up and purchasing its Starter Kit – that is one of the reasons I think it is such a great company!

Priceless Boho Bag-a-lope

This is the Bag-a-lope we made at my eScape night last night. It is amazing what you can do with a some card stock, a few stamps and an envelope, isn’t it?

We used Pretty in Pink card stock and stamped with Pretty in Pink ink Stampin’ Up!’s Priceless swirly stamp (it’s gorgeous, isn’t it?). Then we stamped Boho Backgrounds twice, once in Pretty in Pink and once in Certainly Celery on Whisper White card stock.

The punches then came out! We used the slit punch for the corners of the Certainly Celery Designer Series Paper (DSP) and the Certainly Celery paper. We then punched out our Boho Backgrounds two stamped images with the 1 inch circle and the 1 3/8 inch circle punches. We layered them on top of the scallop circle punch and there you have it! Pop it all on top of Certainly Celery DSP and Certainly Celery cardstock and we’re almost done 🙂

Of course, except for the top of the bag. We used the corner rounder punch for the scalloped effect and then the word window punch (yes! that’s right!) to make the handle. Pretty cool punching, heh!

And what a great bag-a-lope you can use for a gift bag and coordinate with your card.

If you would like to order any punches, they are a great tool and make card making a breeze! Contact me today to order your new punch. Have a great day!
